Executive producer and franchise author Anthony Horowitz said, “It’s been such a great experience seeing the fan reaction to the first two seasons of Alex Rider. I am thrilled this upcoming season will focus on Scorpia, as the story will lead Alex and viewers to question everything they’ve learned so far.”

Executive producer Eve Gutierrez added: “We’re so excited to bring Anthony Horowitz’s fifth Alex Rider novel to life with this upcoming season of the show, a personal favorite of mine and a huge turning point in Alex’s journey.”

Gutierrez continued, “This season throws a spotlight on how all of the characters have grown and evolved over the last few years, and we feel confident that fans will be gripped as Alex finds himself on the cusp of adulthood and torn between two dangerous organizations.”

Based on the best-selling, global phenomenon book franchise written by Anthony Horowitz, which has sold over 20 million copies worldwide, Alex Rider is a London-based teenager who, unbeknownst to him, has been trained for the dangerous world of espionage since he was a child.

Adapted from the fifth Alex Rider novel, Season Three sets the teenage spy on the tail of his greatest enemy: the elusive criminal network known as Scorpia. Under new leadership, the criminal cabal planned to extort the British Government using their catastrophic new super-weapon: ‘Invisible Sword.’

Free of The Department and aided by his closest friends, Tom and Kyra, Alex embarks on a personal mission to destroy Scorpia once and for all. Little does he know, his ties to both organizations run deeper than he ever thought possible.

The third season of Alex Rider features the return of series stars Otto Farrant (Edge of the World, Mrs. Wilson) as Alex Rider, Vicky McClure (Line of Duty, Trigger Point) as Mrs. Jones, and Stephen Dillane (The Outrun, Red Election) as Alan Blunt.

There’s also Brenock O’Connor (The Split, Game of Thrones) as Tom Harris, Ronkẹ Adékọluẹ́jọ́ (Rain Dogs, Christopher Robin) as Jack Starbright, and Marli Siu (Everything I Know About Love, Our Ladies) as Kyra Vashenko-Chao.

As previously announced, new actors joining the cast this season include Sofia Helin (Lust, The Bridge) as Julia Rothman, Shelley Conn (Gen V, Bridgerton) as Laura Kellner, Kevin McNally (The Crown, Pirates of the Caribbean) as Max Grendel, and Jason Wong (Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, The Covenant) as Nile.
